A Keeper Of The Flame

by Hussein

It's not about "bs" or jive
I have a "sacred"  duty to keep our stories alive
I follow where the tale goes
through our collective highs and lows
Like a torch bearer, my words make their rounds
to hamlets, villages cities and towns
I am driven by the work I do
in hopes to inspire the next Hughes or Angelou
My only claim to fame
is  that I am a keeper of the flame
